Walsall social workers in the spotlight as part of Social Work Week 2023
Walsall Council is celebrating Social Work Week 2023, which takes place from Monday 20 to Friday 24 March 2023, by sharing a series of short video stories on social media about the people working in Children’s Services and Adult Social Care.
This year’s theme is respecting diversity through joint social action, and the series of video stories highlights the importance of diversity and the reasons why it attracts staff to work in the profession and for Walsall Council.
“ Social Work Week is a chance to shine a light on the profession and the sheer diversity of roles available within social work. In Walsall, our commitment to strengths-based practice recognises the strengths of individuals and our communities, ensuring any person requiring support is at the centre of all decision-making. “
“ It’s a very fulfilling area to work in and it’s so rewarding to work with children and families and to improve and make a difference to people’s lives. “
“ Social Workers play a crucial role by protecting vulnerable people from harm and abuse and supporting people to live independently. This awareness week highlights the critical work they do here in Walsall.
This series of short videos showcases some of our remarkable staff and their dedication and pride in their jobs. Our social workers support approximately 4,000 people with long-term care needs every year, we are proud of their work and I will encourage anyone interested in working in social work to check www.wmjobs.co.uk. “
